How are you? I hope you're doing well. I hope you don't feel discouraged but I agree with Joseph in that a bankruptcy diminishes your options to almost none. Some landlords will take into consideration the circumstances behind your having to file but others have a hands down no questions asked type of policy & won't even look at your application. Manhattan landlords are more strict so I would suggest you checking into Brooklyn/Queens options. Take care.

If I were the landlord and you were the only game in town, I would want more than just the first month and security. Good luck.
It's a subjective decsion by the owner so we can't possibly know the answer. You might want to put together a letter of explanation to improve your chances of approval. Good luck.

That completely depends upon the landlord or property management and how badly it affected your credit.
Some folks don't realize that once you file a bankruptcy, you cannot file again for a certain number of years. This is a good protection for a landlord.
Good luck with it.
